Posted by Manuela DLRamos em Julho 31, 2013

(An Anthem for Science- Um Hino à Ciência)

Sinfonia da Ciência” é um projeto criado pelo músico John Boswell com o objetivo de transmitir conhecimento científico e filosófico sob uma forma musical.  John Boswell  edita e faz montagem de clips de vídeos científicos e de palestras/entrevistas de cientistas conhecidos, adicionando música da sua autoria às frases dos cientistas, criando assim fantásticos poemas/ canções.

Este vídeo é o quinto da série e,  (como se pode ler no canal do youtube do músico) apresenta 12 cientistas e entusiastas da ciência, incluindo  Michael Shermer, Jacob Bronowski, Carl Sagan, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Richard Dawkins, Jill Tarter, Lawrence Krauss, Richard Feynman, Brian Greene, Stephen Hawking, Carolyn Porco, and PZ Myers..

Vejam aqui a canção anteriormente publicada no blogue da BE.

The Symphony of Science

Posted by Manuela DLRamos em Novembro 12, 2009

 «The Symphony of Science is a musical project by John Boswell designed to deliver scientific knowledge and philosophy in musical form. Here you can watch music videos, download songs, read lyrics and find links relating to the messages conveyed by the music. »

(via Público on line  : «O projecto “Symphony of Science” foi idealizado por John Boswell (músico) como veículo para fazer chegar o conhecimento a uma audiência habitualmente arredada da área científica. Há cerca de dois meses começou a colocar ‘clips’ no YouTube. Já ultrapassou o milhão de visitantes.»)

Letra (Lyrics) fonte

[deGrasse Tyson]
We are all connected;
To each other, biologically
To the earth, chemically
To the rest of the universe atomically[Feynman]
I think nature’s imagination
Is so much greater than man’s
She’s never going to let us relax[Sagan]
We live in an in-between universe
Where things change all right
But according to patterns, rules,
Or as we call them, laws of nature[Nye]
I’m this guy standing on a planet
Really I’m just a speck
Compared with a star, the planet is just another speck
To think about all of this
To think about the vast emptiness of space
There’s billions and billions of stars
Billions and billions of specks[Sagan]
The beauty of a living thing is not the atoms that go into it
But the way those atoms are put together
The cosmos is also within us
We’re made of star stuff
We are a way for the cosmos to know itself
 Across the sea of space
The stars are other suns
We have traveled this way before
And there is much to be learnedI find it elevating and exhilarating
To discover that we live in a universe
Which permits the evolution of molecular machines
As intricate and subtle as we[deGrasse Tyson]
I know that the molecules in my body are traceable
To phenomena in the cosmos
That makes me want to grab people in the street
And say, have you heard this??(Richard Feynman on hand drums and chanting)
There’s this tremendous mess
Of waves all over in space
Which is the light bouncing around the room
And going from one thing to the otherAnd it’s all really there
But you gotta stop and think about it
About the complexity to really get the pleasure
And it’s all really there
The inconceivable nature of nature
